I saw that tutorial but I could not finish it. That is why I'm looking for more accessible information for a beginnertriplus wrote: ↑Thu Nov 09, 2017 7:57 pmhttps://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Module_ ... e_manually
can you try to update your work to the new way how to add workbenches? In my eyes your approach will be a bit misleading for newcomers, as they will use stuff which will lead to potential issues...Now I am learning how to add this tutorial and the following ones to the FreeCAD website.
I am a newcomer, so I am probably misled :)In my eyes your approach will be a bit misleading for newcomers
Thank you very much

All current available workbenches in FreeCAD have some issues: name-clashes, ides-not finding the packages, inconvenient stuff. This new structure presented with the template-extension should avoid such things.
It is not available for 0.16. Only 0.17 allows to use the new structure. I should have said that earlier.felipe wrote:I am using FreeCAD in Windows 10, and I have tried with versions 0.16 64bit and 0.17.12619_x64_dev_win with no success.
I wanted to say, that it is not the best idea to make this an official Workbench documentation. For 0.16 there is no other way, but people will create workbenches for 0.17 and so on if we put this as the "official wb-tutorial" somewhere on FreeCAD's wiki.I am happy to change the tutorial to make it correctly.
I have experienced the same. Understanding why FreeCAD's current module/workbench structure has some drawbacks is not very easy. Also it's quite a boring topic compared to CAD. But in my eyes the ability to extend FreeCAD with python workbenches is a big advantage of FreeCAD and should be as solid as possible.Anam wrote:Thank you to looo but I'm too much beginner for follow your advice, maybe one day i will do that
